    EDIT PLEASE NOTE: AS OF 2/20/2016 THIS ACHIEVEMENT APPEARS TO POTENTIALLY BE GLITCHED FOR SOME USERS. THE GUIDE IS ACCURATE HOWEVER IT IS NOT POPPING FOR SOME PEOPLE.

    Crowd events are ever occurring, yet entirely random. They can be encountered in any district at any time. Your goal os to complete 20 of them. They will appear as little red or orange dots on your minimap depending on what kind of event they are.

    Examples of Crowd Events:

    Protect the Citizen- They're being harassed by Blighters or Templars, kill all the Blighters/Templars before the citizen is killed.

    Scare the Bullies- No sure fire way to do this, what I do is walk up to the bullies and wedge myself between them and the citizen and sneak/stand a few times till they disperse.

    Tackle the Thief- You'll be required to chase after a thief, normally they're slow and awkward so you shouldn't have issue, and when you get close enough, tackle them with B.

    Stealth Kill the Messanger- If someone knows how the heck to do this let me know because I've gotten all of my Crowd Events from the above three.

    But those are four that show up commonly, albeit randomly, throughout the world as you're passing by. Complete them, and you'll get a notification of #/20 events completed and keep doing them till the achievement pops.

    MikeyoligyIt seems this achievement is still buggy, but it's just popped for me. I was on 19 for around an hour, not looking for crowd events but I'd done about 7/8 of them. Did a "tackle the thief" event and it popped. So you'll probably have to do more than 20, but it should pop now.

    Incidentally, my in game tracker says 5/20 events.

    AngelusFor the Scare the Bullies you can just pull your gun on them with LT. Worked every time for me.

    x athiktos xStuck at 95%. The offline method will not work for me as I have a digital copy and cannot play offline, even if my Xbox is listed as "My Home Xbox."

    I guess I will have to start a new file, but I may try to do 20 in one sitting and see if that works.

    Brutal GutsStuck at 95% literally did atleast 7 more still at 95%

    This achievement and the No Ticket Achievement (kicking people off the train) is stuck for me. What makes this one even worse is after starting dlc hoping it would fix like others have said no more crowd events are popping up in the main game and none are popping up in DLC seems like the game is breaking more and more as I play

    iShnb7Did you make it? I bought the season pass and after that no more events appeared on the map. There are few Assassin's creed to shoot, and I can't make this achievement

    Seany Sh0wMine was stuck at 90%. After completing the rest of the game, I started a brand new save (after deleting my old one from cloud & console) & just did two more crowd events in Sequence 3 & the achievement popped.
